If you are heading to New York for business or pleasure, you have to make time for the sex and the city tour. It only takes a few hours, and you get to see all of the places where Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha called home. The tour guides are fabulous, and share some great trivia about the show and the cast.

You will get to see Carrie’s front stoop. Although the audience is led to believe she lives on the Upper East Side, the apartment is actually in the West Village. Bring your credit card and forget about saving money in NYC for a minute, as the tour makes a quick stop at Jimmy Choo. This is where Carrie bought all of her shoes.

If you remember the episode where Charlotte bought her rabbit, you will not be disappointed when the tour bus stops at The Pleasure Chest. One of the funniest Charlotte episodes was at the ABC Carpet & Home. You will see the store where she and her future Mother-In-Law Bunny, had that famous fight over a bed.

The Scout bar, which Steve and Aidan owned, is actually called Onieal’s. Enjoy a cosmopolitan, and remember some of the great episodes that were shot there. Speaking of Aidan, you will go on location and see where he designed his furniture.

The bus will take you to the little church around the corner, where Samantha had a fling with the friar. This is also known as the actor’s church, so they were very accommodating to the cast and crew. The meatpacking district, where Samantha bought her apartment, is another highlight of the tour.

Miranda and Carrie loved cupcakes. Take the Sex and The City tour and you will be treated to a free cupcake at this world-famous bakery. A highlight is the chi-chi department store, where Miranda and the girls talked about Alexander Petrovsky. He was the reason that Carrie moved to France.

For 6 seasons, the women from Sex and the City shopped, ate, hung out, and partied in New York City, and millions of viewers did too. Relive those memories with the Sex and the city tour.

Pirates of the Caribbean Launch Party

The popularity of pirates is pretty universal, kids are getting as much out of the silliness of “National Talk Like A Pirate Day” as the adults are, and fabulous pirate fancy dress costumes are available. The latest installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Pirates of the Caribbean:  On Stranger Tides is up for release soon, and what better excuse for some themed fun than a Pirates of the Caribbean Launch Party?

If you want your guests to dress up, give them plenty of time to organize their costumes. Consider giving out invitations with specific “roles”; pirate wench, buccaneer, Royal Navy Commandant are possible choices, after all, how many Captain Sparrows can one room hold? Use the invitations to set the tone, the more effort you put into them, the more people are likely to put into their costumes.

How far you go with the decoration is up to you, but there are simple ways to bring aspects of pirate ships and of the Caribbean to most venues. Decorative touches for the party can be as simple as hanging lanterns and ropes around the place, or as extreme as covering the whole floor with sand and bringing in life size palm trees. Dust off Halloween skulls and skeletons to add to the look. Keep lighting levels low, and get a mix of reggae and steel drum music burned to disc. For kids’ parties look out for themed paper plates and cups.

If your venue has various rooms then each can have a separate look, aimed at replicating different aspects of the films’ settings. Decorate one as though on-board a ship, a beach area, Davy Jones Locker, the pirates drinking den.

Rum is the obvious choice for alcoholic drinks. Mix up a large bowl of rum punch, and fruit punch for the kids and non-drinkers. Deck out the food tables with plenty of fruit and mangoes to carry on the theme. Using piles of gold wrapped chocolates (round balls or coins normally kept for Christmas decorations). Caribbean cuisine adds a stylish touch, but Barbecues are an easier option for those of us that are lacking in culinary skills. If you’re going the whole hog, and hiring serving staff, make sure they fit the bill by providing them with suitable pirate fancy dress costumes.

For children’s parties (or adults with a sense of humor) theme the fun and games round piratical ideas. Have few treasures hidden round the house and garden (cutlasses, compasses and treasure chests) and mock up some treasure maps to provide clues. Have a quiz based on the Pirates of the Caribbean films, or make them act out scenes from the films. If garden space and weather permits you can even make losers (or winners) walk the plank into a paddling pool. Face painting can add scars, twirled mustaches and eye-patches. Getting in a fully decked out “fortune teller” can add to the atmosphere.
